  2. 3 mistyped as a 5 due to childhood wound?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    Growing up, I acted like a pretty stereotypical Five. I grew up in a pretty volatile home with constant loud, painful arguments and fights between my parents, and between my parents and sibling. It was too much for me to handle and I was overwhelmed, so I pretty much spent most of my time in my...
  3. [INFJ] When you realize your disillusionment over someone (type 3's specifically)

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    First of all let me say, that I realize I'm talking about enneagram on the MBTI forum, not that that is exactly a no no, but they don't always compare, however I feel like my issues with 3's is coming more from an INFJ place then from a 4 place (I'm a INFJ 4) I also want to say I was really...

  5. What do you see?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    These are some recycled highlights from my daily life, based on your reading I'm very curious as to what ennea you see me as I have two recycling bins at home, let's say one is overflowing and the second one's empty (which is often the case). I can't bring the overflowing bin out for the...
  6. [Enneagram Type 3] Do you have a religion or not?

    Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    I find it hard to be committed to religion because I have a hard time doing things solemnly for others. For me, it's all about being better than everyone else. I would end up worshipping for my own gain rather than the gains of others. Does anyone else have this problem? State your religion...
  7. Am I an introverted 3w2 or a 3w4?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I never thought that 3w2 was a possibility because I don't relate to type 2 at all while I share some things in common with type 4. But the more I read, the more I relate. I'm interested in figuring out the general differences between a 3w4 and an introverted 3w2. Can an sp/sx 3w2 exist? It...

  9. The heart triad and abandonment

    Heart Triad - Types 2,3,4
    I've never quite resonated with four's apparent fear of being unoriginal. I've known for a very long time that I was afraid of being left behind, unwanted, forgotten, rejected; abandoned basically. And I thought, "Isn't that more of a two thing" for quite a while. Then I realized, "That's why...
  10. The problem with being an enneagram 3

    Being a 3 is great; the problem, I think, is that we tend to think of ourselves objectively. This makes it easier to see where we can improve ourselves, but also easier to lie about who we are. Because we are fixated on how others view us, this causes us to lie often; it is also why we tend to...
  11. On a mission to figure out my type.

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I'll keep it brief to leave room for questions. I've always had trouble using the Enneagram to figure myself out. It almost seems like my type changes constantly, sometimes on any given day. All that does is make me even more curious. In the past, I completed a 10 question "test" with the...
  12. [Enneagram Type 3] Morally impoverished 3w4 - Karen Crowder [Spoilers]

    Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    After seeing Michael Clayton with G. Clooney and Ms Swinton her character struck me as a horribly gone-wrong-all-the-way 3w4. Swinton - Karen Crowder was a legal counsel for a mighty corporation that screwed up; one scene shows her preparing for an interview at the firm, the process itself was...

    I don't think this thread has been started yet for type 3, so I'll be the one to post it. The purpose of this thread is for sharing those moments you have in your everyday life that make you go "Yup, I'm definitely a 3." I'll start: You know you're a type 3 when the idea of entering a...

  16. 3w4 or 5w6?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I just took a tritype test and got 3w4, 5w6, 1w9. 3w4 was my dominant, and it relates pretty well to me, I think. So... Which is my real dominant? My original typing of 5w6, or 3w4? If you see something other than those two options really standing out, let me know. Please be detailed in your...

    What's my Enneagram type?
    So, I feel fairly confident about my primary Enneagram type (Type 7), and my gut fix (Type 1), but the Image Center gives me pause (I have a hard time relating to, or understanding the Image Center types). I have also received the impression that many people on the forum view me as a...
  20. [Enneagram Type 3] Do type 3's struggle with insomnia?

    Type 3 Forum - The Achiever
    I often find myself swirling with ideas when about to sleep and I think of steps on how to achieve such ideas. Then I can't stand sleeping. I feel like sleeping or laying in bed is too idle of an activity. I want to get up to work on my ideas and accomplish these goals at that very moment. Even...
